Anxiety is a natural response to potential threats, which puts the body and mind into a heightened state of alert. In many circumstances we encounter it is beneficial, like the “almost car accident”, that helped us prevent the crash.
However, there are an estimated 40 million adults that deal with anxiety or persistent anxiety because of perceived threats. Persistent Anxiety generates very different responses in your body and mind.
With Persistent Anxiety again, your body and mind are reacting and responding to the things you’ve witness or endured. But the responses are amplified, causing stress and emotional pain. It can be debilitating. Our internal alarm system seems to go off without warning or reason, and it feels as if no one (even you) can understand what you are experiencing or why.
When this is the case, it is the cumulative affect of multiple unprocessed or unresolved experiences that keep anxiety at the surface or generating a constant undercurrent. It is no surprise that many with Persistent Anxiety deal with depression, fearful there is no way to overcome the challenge. Know that with patience and persistence, it can be conquered!
While a multi-pronged approach is wise, the most valuable tool you can employ is Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). “Why EFT?” Because when skillfully applied the unprocessed and unresolved issues will be cleared, allowing body and mind to function more optimally.
“EFT seems so simple, is there a reason I shouldn’t I or couldn’t I do this on my own?”
EFT is a marvelous self-empowerment tool that you can use independently for a multitude of issues. Be that as it may, when it comes to complex issues such as this, trying it on your own can lead to disappointment and more frustration. Many end up deciding it won’t work for them or that EFT doesn’t work. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Persistent Anxiety is complex and requires the guidance and skill that only a seasoned EFT professional can offer. A professional can also offer suggestions other things you can do along with EFT to enhance the process.
Whatever the level of anxiety you may be faced with, trust that there is hope. Trust you possess the strength within to free yourself.
